Hi guys.

Just wondering if anyone knew if it was an easy job to reposition an aerial base on a focus mk2.5?

It is'nt positioned on the centreline of the car so when you screw the aerial in fully, it looks daft as it points out to the right slighly and looks daft!!

Never seen this on another car before so its a new one on me....

Mike.

Never tried it myself, but I expect at minimum, you will need to strip the headlining and play with balancing the arial from the inside. I suspect once you get started, you may regret it.

Yeah, just looking at it tells me not to meddle with it!

I can imagine it now, I strip it down, readjust it and 2 years later my pride n joy rusts from the roof down because I didnt seal it properly!! :o

Its just annoying because I know its rotated slightly off centre even if no one else notices, I still know!

Dont know what to do?

There is a nut up behind the courtesy light.
I suggest getting some silicone up into the bolt hole before re-tightening it.
